1) Fr. Hunwicke, Modestinus informs, “has begun a series of posts on the Vatican II document Nostra Aetate and the so-called ‘Two Covenant Theory’: the first, for the Jews (which is still intact), and the second, for everyone else.” Fine weekend reading.

2) Fr. Hunwicke, Modestinus explains, “has recognized that 2014 is the Sesquicentenary of Blessed Pius IX’s Quanta Cura and the Syllabus Errorum (“Syllabus of Errors”). In honor of this little noticed event, Fr. Hunwicke has started writing a series of posts on the Syllabus; the first two are available here and here. I look forward to a year’s worth of interesting reading.”As do I.

I’ve only been acquainted with Modestinus and Fr. Hunwicke for a couple weeks, and both seem to offer rich fare. As a starter, I recommend Modestinus’s post, “Here Comes Schism?” and the follow-up post.

Happy reading.

    I’ve enjoyed reading Fr. Hunwicke for many years. He’s as erudite as he is charitable and has a droll sense of humor.

    I don’t read Modestinus much any more. Nothing against him. I just found his posts didn’t interest me for a while so I stopped dropping in to read or comment. I may have to remedy that.

    Enjoy both, Elliot.

    Reading the second Syllabus post linked and its mention of the First Vatican Council.

    I had a rather stiff debate with an Eastern Rite priest about Papal Primacy and the necessity for a serious understanding of it to be included in any theory of Papal “interference” with bishops.

Be kind, be (relatively) brief, be clear...
